No Water Pressure City Wide

At this time, there is no water pressure. Crews are working to repair a water main break as quickly as possible. We have received a very high number for calls regarding the issue, which in turn has flooded the phone lines and not all calls are coming through. Thank you for your patience as we continue to repair the water main break.

NOTICE TO BID-RECONSTRUCT FIELDS AT SPORTS COMPLEX

NOTICE TO BID

 

The City of High Springs is searching for qualified vendors to reconstruct the multipurpose fields at the Sports Complex (19499 NW 238TH ST High Springs Fl).  The project includes bringing the grade of the field about 12″ from end to end and crowning the center to divert water away from field. Dirt will be moved on site and the rest will be brought in to level the field. Dirt to be brought in varies on load count; 5-10 loads expected.  Current sprinkler heads will be marked and the vendor cannot go more than 12” below the surface on dirt removal.  Upon grading the field and getting it ready for sod the city requests that the vendor also lay the sod that will be provided by the city (in rolls); estimated 4-5 acres of sod.  Please include your estimated completion date with your proposal.

 

Desired Project Completion: 7/28/17.

Preference will be given to vendors that can complete the project earliest.

Pokemon & Magic the Gathering here in High Springs!

Pokemon & Magic the Gathering

The recreation department has created a Pokemon and Magic the gathering night here in the city.  We have partnered with Gamesville Tabletop and they bring their experts out to help run battles and facilitate the games!  They also bring merchandise for purchase!  Our first event was this past Thursday and welcomed an attendance of over 30 players.   The parents and participants asked that we bring this event back so we have decided to host another Pokemon/Magic night June 8th from 530-830 pm at the Old School in High Springs next to the Police department (23760 NW 187th Ave High Springs FL 32643 ).  IF you could please forward this message to all of your players, friends, family etc to help spread the word  it would be very helpful.  If we have enough participants will be able to run this event all summer long!!
